Tanzania is a colorful land of contrasts, from the snow-capped peak of Mt. Kilimanjaro to the sun-dappled beaches of Zanzibar, from the vast wildlife grazing across the Serengeti plains to the other worldly reaches of the Ngorongoro Crater. Tanzania is a safari-land of bursting sunsets and perhaps the friendliest people on the continent.
Serengeti – the name is known the world over as the essence of Africa with its endless savannah and breathtaking density of wildlife. Here on these fields are born the millions of wildebeest and zebra of the Great Migration, the largest movement of animals on the planet.
Step into the adventure movie of the Ngorongoro Crater – a forested volcanic crater, alive with lions, cheetahs and even flamingoes! Tens of thousands of animals dwell in the world’s largest intact volcanic caldera. You’ll be spoiled after spending time in this active Eden.
Throughout Tanzania’s northern plains you can spot the pinnacle of mighty Mt. Kilimanjaro, Africa’s tallest peak. Like a snowy beacon beckoning one forward, thousands visit and some even climb the rugged slopes of this legendary massif.
But don’t leave Tanzania without sampling the finest beaches in East Africa. These magical stretches of crystalline sand under swaying palms are a respite from all the cares of the world. And a visit to the beaches of Zanzibar with its wash of Swahili culture just might be the most memorable.
But wherever you go in this richly cultured land of colorful markets, bazaars and indigenous Maasai people, you’ll feel the gracious warmth of the Tanzanians as they wish you a most wonderful stay in this welcoming country.
